Wormhole out now!

My new album, Wormhole is now available to purchase/download via Bandcamp

“Whilst on my 3rd European tour in April 2017, I spent 3 days at WORM Studio, Rotterdam, with their large collection of vintage synthesizers and drum machines. I had two plans for the studio time, the first was to record the synth parts to my then upcoming album, ‘Hive Mind’ (Drone Rock Records, 2017) the second, was to spend as much time improvising and exploring these machines, most of which I would probably never get another chance to play on.

I came away with close to 3 hours worth of material from my time at WORM. The tracks presented here are all improvised, with no overdubs. The last track on ‘Wormhole’ was recorded on my final evening in the studio. I set up 9 synths, a drum machine and my guitar and did a live Facebook video stream. The video is now available to view here youtu.be/wqUgnEgjU-E ”

The cd version is a limited 4 panel gatefold CD, with an 8 page booklet.

Hive Mind now on Bandcamp/Spotify

Hive Mind is now available on Bandcamp and Spotify, and psychical copies can be purchased over at Drone Rock Records, or check your local distributor for international orders.

Reviews have also started to come in:

“…masterful work that will transport you hither and yon, it ought only to enhance Stereocilia’s critical and commercial status while cementing Drone Rock Records’ reputation for eclectic and praiseworthy releases. May they both live long and prosper.”  – Terrascope 

 “…By the end of the record you really feel like you’ve been on a journey… one that you may be in a hurry to repeat.” - Psych Insight Music 

 “…bewitching, entrancing and, above all, utterly, utterly beautiful” - Dayz of Purple and Orange

Hive Mind LP up for pre-sale!

colourscheme

I’m happy to announce that my new album, ‘Hive Mind’ will be released by the Brighton based label, Drone Rock Records. Links to the pre-sale and album information below.

‘Hive Mind’ is the 3rd full length album from Stereocilia, and heaviest to date. This 4 track album spanning over 40 minutes takes you on a journey exploring the boundaries of drone and psych. ‘Hive Mind’ also sees Stereocilia collaborating with another musician for the first time, with a guest appearance from Thought Forms drummer, Guy Metcalfe. Guy brings his unique drumming style to the 20+ minute sonic exploration, ‘Another Sleepless Dream’ and adds a new dimension to ever evolving project that is Stereocilia.

“Yet again Drone Rock have brought us something different and thought-provoking. ‘Hive Mind’ works on so many levels it is staggering. It is bewitching, entrancing and, above all, utterly, utterly beautiful.”
Dayz of Purple And Orange

“By the end of the record you really feel like you’ve been on a journey, one that you may be in a hurry to repeat.”
Psych Insight

Hive mind will be a total pressing of 300 records, with two variants:-

Special edition heavyweight vinyl with splatter effects 

150 copies on transparent blue heavyweight vinyl with splatter effects.

Transparent blue vinyl edition

150 copies on transparent blue vinyl

You can stream the first track ‘The Water Has No darkness’

I shall be having an album launch show at the Cube in Bristol on Saturday the 25th November. I will be joined on stage by Guy Metcalfe who will be helping me bring the album to life for the first time. I’m excited to be sharing the bill with Rotten Bliss from London and Bristol’s finest drum and vocal duo, EP/64. Links to event page here
